U S President Barack Obama and French President Hollande participate in the 70-anniversary of D-Day in NormandyBy Roberta Rampton and Jeff Mason COLLEVILLE-SUR-MER FRANCE (Reuters) – President Barack Obama paid tribute on Friday to U.S. veterans who 70 years ago stormed the beaches of northern France, telling them their spirit of courage and sacrifice is being continued by a new generation of soldiers who fought in Afghanistan and Iraq. For most, it likely will be the last time they are able to witness a milestone anniversary of the Allied invasion in northern France that helped bring the defeat of Nazi Germany. Obama told the stories of several veterans, including 82nd Airborne Division paratrooper Kenneth “Rock” Merritt, who is from Oklahoma but now lives in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
